Wallingford, CT (PRWEB) May 11, 2015
Dr. Randy J. Greenberg is pleased to announce that he now provides a variety of options for anyone interested in sedation. There are many reasons for patients to require sedation, from the convenience of receiving an extensive amount of work in a single appointment, to severe dental anxiety and more. As with other aspects of medicine, sedation is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Dr. Greenberg offers differing levels of sedation in order to meet the needs of each person who walks through his door. With his personalized attention to individuals, patients receive the right level of sedation dentistry in Wallingford, CT.
Nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation work well for those needing light to moderate sedatives. The nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, takes only minutes to work and then wears off just as quickly once the gas is turned off. Patients who need a little help taking the edge off of dental anxiety or a gag reflex do well with this form of sedation; they can even drive themselves to and from the appointments. Dr. Greenberg also administers oral conscious sedation in a pill that patients take an hour before their appointments. It causes relaxation to the point of grogginess and a tendency to fall asleep. Patients using this type of sedation dentistry in Wallingford, CT, must have a ride to and from their appointments. It works well for stronger gag reflexes and conditions that typically lead to discomfort in dental chairs, such as back or hip problems. Those with moderate to high anxiety also benefit from oral medication.
IV sedation allows patients to obtain the highest level of relaxation possible in dental offices. A nurse anesthetist delivers intravenous medication that puts patients into a semi-conscious state. Generally, patients are aware enough to respond to questions, but have little or no memory of the appointments afterward. Patients with severe cases of dental anxiety or gag reflexes may benefit from this type of sedation, along with those who find that the numbing shots do not work well on them.
Anyone who would like additional information about sedation dentistry in Wallingford, CT, may visit Dr. Greenberg’s website or inquire by calling his office. Dr. Greenberg is happy to discuss options in greater detail with patients, and he offers no-obligation consultations.
